Alice the Car — San Luis Obispo, California

Dorothy: “1929 Chev. San Luis Obispo, California. 1945-46. Sitting on our first car, which Grandma Noorlander had for Danny when he came home from World War II. We called her ‘Alice.’ We were able to buy a later model after Dan graduated, so we gave it to the Cal and Eyvonne Rohner who came from Inglewood to pick it up. It was parked in front of our first aparment. We had been married about six months. Sitting on the car are Cal, Dorothy, Eyvonne, Ethel (friend who lived in the other half of the duplex), and Dan standing by the car.”

Dorothy in Lakeside, Oregon, eight months pregnant with her first daughter Dahrl Jean, who died December 15, 1946, only two days after her birth on December 13, 1946. Dorothy was taking a plane to Eugene, Oregon on her way to California. Because the airport was fogged in, they had to return to Lakeside. Dan was able to get her a different flight to spare her the long drive to California.
